Lolly Stick Christmas Tree Shape Decorations

A simple and colourful way to create some hanging decorations this festive period.

To make these you will need the following:

Coloured Lolly Sticks
Thin Gold Card
Glue Dots or PVA Glue
Scissors
Sticky Tape
Gold Ribbon
A selection of decorations e.g. Sequins, Foam Glitter Shapes, Glitter Pom Poms,
Plastic Jewels, Glitter Dots, Pipe Cleaners etc.

To make a Lolly Stick Tree Decoration:

  1. Decide on the shape of your decoration, snowflake or Christmas tree.
  2. For the snowflake, take 4 blue lolly sticks. Arrange them to make 2 overlapping crosses. Use the glue dots or PVA glue to stick them together. Once dried in place, decorate them using a variety of colourful and sparkly decorations.
  3. For the Christmas tree, take 3 green lolly sticks. Arrange them to make a triangle. Use the glue dots or PVA glue to stick them together. Cut a red lolly stick in half and glue onto the tree to make a trunk. Once dried in place, decorate them using a variety of colourful and sparkly decorations.
  4. To make the hanging loop, cut a length of gold ribbon, fold into a loop and tape to back of the decoration to finish.
  5. Display your decoration on the tree or around the room!
